Indianapolis-based system tries to improve healthcare with a card
Community Health Network, an Indianapolis-based hospital system, wants to bring the same sort of computerized convenience of an ATM to healthcare through its new myCommunity program. The service offers a variety of free tech tools to patients who sign up to receive a credit-card-sized "myCommunity" card. It will also feature express check-in kiosks to be installed at one hospital first, then throughout the system eventually. Patients will swipe their myCommunity cards and use touch screens to complete the inpatient and outpatient check-in process. MyCommunity also allows patients to keep track of their conditions and medications.
